Yet more evidence the Singularity is not in our future but in our past:
Why was I late? Oreo cookies were all over - Rockford, IL - Rockford Register Star: Traffic is backed up in Morris after a trailer loaded with 14 tons of double-stuffed Oreos overturned, spilling boxes of cookies into the median and road.
Illinois State Police Sergeant Brian Mahoney says the truck’s driver was traveling on I-80 near Morris around 4 a.m. today when he fell asleep at the wheel and slammed into the median, spilling some of the 28,000 pounds of treats.
The crash about 50 miles southwest of Chicago remains under investigation.
Mahoney says no charges have been filed but both lanes of traffic remain closed while authorities remove the cookies.
